Thumbs up [Q] HTC M8 GSM Firewater: All out of bottles and still no buzz.

HTC M8 GSM, (Locked to O2 UK)
HBOOT 3.16.0..0000,
OS-1-54.206.5

Unlocked using HTCDEV.
Rooted using TWRP
Flashed UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.94.zip
Verified using rootchecker.

Using OSX Terminal and USB2 connection:
Flashed Firewater,
Gained SU,
Modded permissions,
Ran firewater.

All I ever get is this message:

================================================== =======================
preparing, one moment


The first bottle is open
chugging..........
whelp, that bottle is empty, opening bottle 2
chugging..........
whelp, that bottle is empty, opening bottle 3

whelp, that bottle is empty, opening bottle 4

whelp, that bottle is empty, opening bottle 10
chugging..........
whelp, that bottle is empty, opening bottle 11

whelp, that bottle is empty, opening bottle 12

all out of bottles and still no buzz reboot device by holding power and try again


Any ideas what I need to do? Really need to sim-unlock this phone.

Keep trying. Lots of people are reporting that they had to run it multiple times before it worked.

Several people, including me, had it working by copying a large file (1-2 GB) to the internal memory (just drag & drop) while the 1st bottle is opened/chugging.
Current:
HTC One (m8)

Past:
Tornado, Trinity (sold) - Kaiser (sold) - Diamond (sold) - Topaz (sold) - Leo (broke!) - Pyramid (sold) - EndeavorU - (sold) - M7 (sold).

No luck for me with that unfortunately.

Brilliant.

Using OSX I fired up Android File Transfer, Flashed Firewater and sent over 4 7Mb Video Files to the M8 internal memory after 8 Bottles I got S-OFF message.


Thank you.
